Director Bryan Singer has revealed details of Hugh Jackman’s cameo in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ - the star’s final appearance in a mainline X-Men...
Bryan Singer Was Killed By Wolverine In Hugh Jackman's X-Men: Apocalypse Cameo
Singer also revealed that he stepped in front of the camera to partake in the scene, in a special moment between the pair - whose working relationship began with 2000’s original 'X-Men’.
The scene in question depicts Jackman as Wolverine in his feral Weapon X guise, inside the facility that grafted indestructible adamantium to his skeleton.
Wiped of memories and incredibly pissed off, Weapon X is inadvertently let loose by newbie mutant heroes Jean Grey, Nightcrawler and Cyclops. Wolverine then takes his rage out on dozens of security guards in a brutal and bloody scene.
In the latest issue of Empire, the magazine says to Singer: “The last shot Hugh Jackman filmed on a main X-Men movie was of Wolverine killing you, in a cameo as a security guard. A nice way to come full circle?”
In response Singer said: “Yes! I did it on purpose. It’s not my usual thing, but to do it then to get a bear hug from a bloody, but very happy, Wolverine was great. It was very poetic.”
Singer also discussed the timing of the scene, which filmed only a few months ago in February. “It’s very important for Hugh that, if he does a scene like this where he’s exposing his body, it be his body and that it be him doing these very dangerous stunts with all this metal flying around.”
